Emilia Clarke from Game of Thrones is a total babe – don’t act like you haven’t ogled the Khaleesi once or twice – so it’s no surprised that people are pretty stoked to see her strip down on stage as part of her role as Holly Golightly in the Broadway production of Breakfast At Tiffany’s. They’re so stoked, in fact, that they’re breaking rules and taking photos of the actress in the nude. Uh oh.
One scene in particular has been causing major headaches for the Cort Theatre, which began previewing the show this week. In it, Clarke as Golightly gets undressed and slips into a bubble bath with co-star Cory Michael Smith who plays Fred.
“She undresses him and he gets in the tub,” a knowledgeable source told the New York Post. “She then goes offstage and comes back in a towel. She takes it off and gets in with him. So you don’t see everything. There are bubbles strategically placed.”
Apparently the partial nudity was enough to whip the peanut gallery into a frenzy, with many audience members in balcony seats pulling out their phones to snap photos in direct defiance of the theater’s strict “no photos” policy.
As a result of the flash mob, the theater has been forced to increase security ahead of the show’s opening night on March 20th.
Hilarious. We certainly didn’t hear shit like this when Daniel Radcliffe went full frontal on stage in Equus, that’s for sure. Everyone needs to calm down and go take a cold shower.
